Roma and Nike unveil their away colours for the upcoming 2018/19 season in a design that pays tribute to the story on which this club and fine city were built upon. If you're interested in that, then great, keep reading. If you're not, then it's grey. Move on.
The founding story of Rome goes that brothers Romulus and Remus were raised by a she-wolf (hence that weird club crest). That creature is a vital symbol for Rome and has inspired the Giallorossi’s 2018/19 away kit. The shirt plays on the mythology surrounding the city and how the club places great value on this important symbol. Wolf is grey = kit is grey. Got it? Good.
Forgetting about the wolf for second, and the shirt is typical of Nike's 2018/19 and 2018 World Cup shirts. Fitted with a streamline aesthetic and AeroSwift technology, it's all about those details upon closer inspection; just like the Roma 18/19 home shirt.
The lupetto (little wolf), another cherished wolf symbol, returns for the 2018/19 season too. The logo, which has appeared periodically on Roma kits over the years — first used in 1978 and last employed in 2016 — is back to garnish this wolf-theme kit as a subtle feature on the rear of the neck.
